There's some new Saints Row media available in gametrailers.com
To be honest I was never that interested in this game in the first place, but it's really starting to look nice in these new videos. The city seems well-constructed with great draw distance and nice little details adding to realism. There's rag doll dynamics, cars with more realistic suspension and shading, you can just walk into any store or open building without annoying loading times an so on.
Sure, it's a 1:1 San Andreas copy, but it seems they've taken the same concept and really improved it on most areas. It's easily technically superior, but it also looks like they haven't screwed up the gameplay too much. Could it be that we have the first decent free-roaming game here besides GTA series?
ps. Don't you just love the way the guy that played in video 2 sucked ass, trying to hit the old chap with bazooka seven times and missing every single shot. I mean, even my girlfriend could kick this guys butt
